Today's cars have an elaborate fuel delivery system to maximize performance while using as little fuel as possible. This system has very tight tolerances, and must be maintained to assure it'll deliver fuel when your engine needs it. Whether your car uses a carburetor or a fuel-injection system, our ASE Certified Technicians can maintain your system, and troubleshoot any problems should they arise.
An old fuel filter can often create intermittent and mysterious problems and make it difficult to detect engine problems. All gasoline contains a small amount of dirt and contaminates that your fuel filter collects and this gradually reduces the flow of gas to your engine. When the filter is completely blocked, your car stops, or perhaps it fails to start. Usually, while there is only a partial flow of gas you may have a hard time starting, starting and stalling, or everything will seem fine at slow speed but sputter and run badly on the highway. Change it every 30,000 miles to get better gas mileage and reduce the stress of a potential breakdown.
Burning gasoline results in carbon deposits building up on fuel injector nozzles and internal engine parts. Over time, this carbon build-up causes poor engine performance, reduced gas mileage and sometimes damage to fuel injectors or internal engine parts. Every 37,500 miles we recommend servicing the fuel injection system to remove these carbon deposits resulting in improved engine performance, higher gas mileage, and preclude mechanical damage.
